The city of Odessa’s largest farmers market, and possibly the country’s too (and perhaps the largest in the world), was founded in 1827. Its growth was contributed to by the influx of different nationalities into the city at the time. Even today this international feel is well preserved. Goods on offer include food such as fish, vodka, shrimp, caviar, farm produce, and perfume, shoes, tools, second hand goods, old clothes, and possibly even stolen goods. There's nearly nothing you can't find here. The market has often been called almost as much of a recycling center as a department store. Vendors set up shop right outside full-fledged retail outlets. Be careful of pickpockets. You should know that the vendors expect you to haggle. The market enjoys a significant cultural reputation with many mentions in music and literature.

It is a must visit place in Odessa. Huge in size, and lots of characters. It gives an understanding how the locals sell all kinds of things. You can find fresh vegetables, fruits, fish meat, building materials, clothing, crafts and many more. People are very nice indeed and always try to be helpful and honest. I loved it and will visit again.
This is a must-visit place for tourists to Odessa. The largest market area in the region, maybe the country, where you can buy almost anything. Of course a large section for vegetable produce, but there's areas of different kinds of produce and products and clothing, technology... Just about everything. But newcomers do need to beware of pickpockets, and also aware of the fact that the unwary foreigner may be overcharged. If you are used to paying a pound sterling or more for just 6 tomatoes, be aware that in Ukraine, depending on the season, the same cost should net you 2 or 3 kilogrammes or more!
A legendary Odessa market. Pros: Great variety of local food - vegetables, fruits, all kinds of meat, fish (hey, it’s a sea city) for affordable prices. Of course, you can trade, too. All tasty, grown in fertile Ukrainian black soil. Cons: Sellers can be rude, sanitary conditions can be far from average EU standards. But it’s still worth of visiting even just for getting a full experience of Odessa history as the market is really old and still preserves some of that original flavor.
Legendary fish market, and more. A visit is mandatory if you are in Odessa. This is one of those places where you can have a sense of what it feels like to be part of the community. Also this is the oldest market in this wonderful city of Odessa.
An absolutely must see and must be in Odessa. This place is full of people - locals and tourists (you can chat with locals, since they are talkative). You can buy here absolutely everything - exotic fruit, spices, seafood, as well as local ones- fresh watermelons, grapes, tomatoes. What is not nice about this place is the smell in the place where meat is. And the worst thing is the fact that majority of stalls closes around 5PM, and there's information that it's working till 7PM.
